There are up to 487,500 Australian’s currently living with dementia and this number is estimated to rise to over 1-million people by 2058. Dementia is more common in females than males, and is the second leading cause of death of Australians.
Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a group of conditions which cause a progressive decline in a person’s functioning.  Dementia is categorised to describe a loss of memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and physical functioning.  There are many types of dementia.  It can happen to anybody but dementia is most common after the age of 65.

Research has shown that regular exercise and cognitive training are powerful components in reducing risk of developing dementia as well as for reducing cognitive decline associated with the condition.
